Great people, shifting culture, unclear future
Journals Editorial (Current Employee) – MA – April 6, 2015
I should start by saying the vast majority of employees across Wiley are competent, collegial, and driven. There's so much knowledge among the offices, but a lot of it's being driven away by constant shifts in focus and a general loss of culture.
Wiley's in the past called itself "the place to be," but it's not even clear what that means these days, with massive layoffs/cost efficiencies, and shifts back and forth between publisher, digital services provider, technology wannabe...lather, rinse, repeat.
To their credit, senior leadership is becoming much more vocal and clear, but I'm not sure how the majority of those leaders can be in place through restructure after restructure. Are these folks really the best equipped to lead us into the future?
Now, all that said, work/life balance is excellent. Pay is probably about what you'd expect. Organic advancement can be slow, although if you're willing to hustle and create opportunities, they're usually there.
Great work/life balance, good mid-management, friendly people
Unclear future, lots of layoffs, shifting culture
